During the 62nd edition of the General Assembly of the World Intellectual Property Organization, Julián Palacín, President of the National Institute for the Defense of Competition and the Protection of Intellectual Property (Indecopi), underlined the importance of having an effective intellectual property system to generate economic, social and cultural developments in Peru.
In this regard, Indecopi is committed to integrating small and medium-sized enterprises, in particular in the rural productive sector, into current intellectual property practices. It aims to facilitate their use of intellectual property tools, which will ensure the protection of their creations and the development of their innovations, and will become a source of profit.
Indecopi is also committed to the protection of distinctive signs, in particular collective marks. A high level of importance has been assigned to these marks due to the social and historical character that precedes them, allowing people and communities to perpetuate the customs, ancestral knowledge and ancient traditions of Peru.
